MADISON COUNTY —
Vaccinating calves soon after birth
This vaccination program has fewer products available with combined immune protection. It is important to know what the products actually treat. Discuss with your veterinarian to see what products work best for your operation.
In this program, you are depending on the calf to absorb the vaccine through its intestinal wall, the same way colostrum is absorbed across the wall, thus it is important they are treated soon after birth for the most effective protection.
Educational programs of the Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, sex, religion, disability or national origin.
